I love Franz Ferdinand. I hope their new one comes out soon. I've waited too long!

East Bay Punk Mafia, FTW!

You mean recorded on a one track tape in somebody's basement with the amps turned up way too high?

Tonight was bummer; my softball team had a playoff game, and we won, so we had another right after...we fell behind 12-4 and lost 12-11. We then went out to the bar we always go to after and it looks like 1/2 my coworkers are on a mission to get drunk and laid, with each other. Fun times. I was exhausted so I split, and here I am.

That's cool, for the most part. HR will have a fun time sorting that all out.

But this...it's just rather boring. I don't know why, but the songs have no...power. Or something. Everything sounds like it was recorded as flatly as possible on a four track. Plus, the singer has that sloppy-yet-somehow-on-key thing going that all indie vocalists do.
I don't think I've fallen for any of the sensations. I suppose plenty of Indiewankerland residents wank over EITS, but that's been a fairly consistent and more low-key thing without the over-hype aspect.

Most of what's hyped, I just find to be overly simplistic in a bad way, and boring.

I suspect this may not go well.

Good luck.

Haha, yeah, that sounds like some Dunedin Sound stuff. Shitloads of material was recorded onto Chris Knox's portable four-track recorder and then just released raw. They didn't have the finances to do anything more, since all the major labels didn't give a shit about the Dunedin Sound for the most part. Though they wanted in when The Chills began charting in a big way!

I maintain the worst sounding recording I've ever heard in my life is the Wheatfields EP by The Weeds. The first song is this studio song that is barely listenable. The second song is a live track that makes the first sound like it has pristine production values. There's this godawful high pitched noise throughout it that just makes me want to kill things.

Toby Flenderson is everything that is wrong with the paper industry today.

I like Everything in Its Right Place a little more than before, but still no love for the title track. And the National Anthem is kind of meh. Nice bassline, but everything else is kind of a mess. And the horn thing going on at the end is beyond dreadful.

There's a few live songs that are like that on a "professionally" done Green Day concert album. *stabs the producers and engineers*

I have a lot of East Bay stuff. Perhaps I could trade you some songs that bring lulz for some Dunedin stuff.

See, at least I think this wasn't professionally done. But I still cannot fathom how it is so hideously bad.

Heh, sure. I also have some early eighties Kiwi DIY anarcho-punk that is just ... fucking odd. I'm tempted to use a track in one DI installment just to mindfuck people.
